After a fresh installation of Fedora, you may want to add some more features which would help you work or enjoy media and movies.
At first, you should install rpmfusion-free and rpmfusion-nonfree respositories, and enable them.
1. Install MPlayer and Xine
sudo yum install mplayer mplayer-gui \ gecko-mediaplayer mencoder xine-lib-extras xine-lib-extras-freeworld \ vlc rhythmbox gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-bad \ gstreamer-ffmpeg xine-ui
supposed you installed RhythmBox, but it does not work. please execute the following lines to rebuild the plugins data.
rm $HOME/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.x86_64.bin gst-inspect
2. Install compiz desktop effects
sudo yum install emerald-themes compiz-fusion-extras emerald \ compiz-fusion compiz-manager compiz-fusion-extras-gnome \ gnome-compiz-manager libcompizconfig compiz-fusion-gnome ccsm fusion-icon
3. Install skype
sudo yum install libXv.i686 libSScrnSaver.i686 qt.i686 qt-x11.i686 -y
and download the skype 32bit version for fedora from skype official site and execute
sudo yum localinstall ./skype-
.rpm --nogpgcheck -y

Generally, Fedora provides a good reader for pdf files, but it’s still necessary for installing acrobat reader. Please download acrobat reader for fedora at first, of course, it only provides 32 bit version up to now.

and yum will solve dependencies automatically.
